    Thinking of buying a WRX

    I went to the dealer today and looked at a 2008 WRX. Satin white with grey interior. They are asking 19,800 car has 32k miles. What are these cars worth? and how well do they stand up mechanically? what problems tend to go wrong with these? Do the turbo's wear out? any input or help would be great

    Search for the sticky on how to buy a used subaru. I believe it is in the car purchasing forum. All the ?'s have been answered many times.

    How to Buy a Used WRX or STI

    Now, is the 08 a premium package? At the end of 08 people were rolling of the lots in 08's (base model) for around $20K. We have an 08 premium and were trying to trade it in for another 08 but in the hatch model. Dealer said best thay could give us was $17,500 on the trade (others said $13K). Car only had 12k miles on it at the time. Outside was 9.5/10 and inside was 10/10 on their scale. For $19,800 you can find a decent mileage 05 STi or for a couple thousand more an 06 STi.

    The 08's are the black sheep of the WRX family. Much hate and distain for them. Hence their lack of popularity.
